Saab Owner becomes Subie Owner
By Kenny Steinberg on
Vehicle2009 Subaru Forester 2.5XT Limited 4dr SUV AWD w/VDC (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 4A)
ReviewI bought this as a safe city car for my wife and teenage daughter to share. We are very happy with our purchase. I have read here about the imploding turbo engines on these. I have discussed this with my service manager. He said that early VIN versions did indeed have that problem, but that this has been worked out. Hope so! This is a perfect size for us, and fits four people very comfortably, with five in a pinch.
Best FeaturesEngine smoothness and power, quiet cabin, rear seat legroom, support from the leather seats, comfortable ride and good handling, large sunroof.
Worst FeaturesPassenger seat too low and no height adjustment; sound system sounds good but is too weak; fuel economy disappointing so far; no six-speed auto and no manual transmission available with the turbo.
